I’ve had such fun the last couple of years participating in the Quiltcon Mini Swap sponsored by the Modern Quilt Guild. Last year I was brave and came up with my own design, but this year I decided to knock something off my “want to sew” list…a pineapple block. I used the pattern Penelope I found on Etsy for the foundation paper piecing.
Nine blocks later, while I’m not a pineapple block pro, I definitely feel as if I can mark this block off my list.
The fabric is Dwell in Possibility by Gingiber and I absolutely love it. I purchased a fat quarter set and then yardage of the panels that go along with this line. I used one of the blocks from the panel for the back (I totally forgot to get a picture of that) and I’m saving the other three blocks for something special.
Pineapple blocks are one of those things that look so complicated, but honestly aren’t. They can be a little time consuming (I mean what FPP isn’t?), but the dimensions they show are just mind boggling.
I was a little sad to see it go, but it’s also fun to ship things off to people too and hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making it.
Any my swap mini was beyond spot on perfect! I just about died when I opened it up and saw all these teacups and books! Totally fantastic!
